Welcome to Harvest High!


My name is Kathy Diederich and I am excited to be your new principal at Harvest High. I have been in education for 20 years. Over my educational career I have taught elementary and middle school. I have spent the last 10 years in Special Education. Ripon has become my home and community. Through all my experiences my number one goal is to help students reach their full potential and help them achieve their goals. I am honored to have been appointed to this position and am looking forward to continuing the work being done at Harvest. During this challenging time, educators, parents and students are being asked to approach education in different ways. With our skilled and devoted staff, I am confident in being able to support students both academically and socially/emotionally. It is important to have a partnership with parents as well as students, and be able to build a network of support in moving our students towards graduation and providing them a path for success after graduation. I urge communication and want you to know that I am available to listen and to support you.


As we move through this school year, I look forward to knowing your children and creating the environment students need to feel safe, secure and happy, so they can focus and achieve their goals.
